Start with simple commands and after gaining experience, pass to more complex scripts.
Scripts can be written in any simple text editor and saved as *.avs files. These files can be opened afterwards by using a media player.
Although AviSynth can process a wide variety of video and audio files, it depends on the codecs you have previously installed on your PC.
Editing can be performed, though, without needing temporary files, which ensures a higher speed.
AviSynth enjoys support from other programs, as well, such as VirtualDubMod
. These applications allow you to create scripts and to apply various filters and effects.
With AviSynth, when you load the script into a compatible media player (Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic, GOM Player, etc), you don’t have to add any extra input. The script is read like any other video and you’ll soon enjoy the complex series of effects you have applied.
Even if the need to learn new commands may discourage some users in the beginning, AviSynth is definitely a better choice, especially for professionals which need to process a large amount of video files. The result is much faster with this piece of software than it would be by using applications which feature a GUI.
AviSynth’s complexity is only exceeded by its power. This application is definitely the best choice if you want to process videos like an expert, in ways you would not have imagined before.
This application is designed rather for professionals, but AviSynth is not such a restrictive tool if you study the documentation and learn its code lines.
